A Rough Day
By Jerrilynn on April 13, 2012
I didn't post yesterday due to attending a memorial service. Without a doubt, the worst part of aging is the ever increasing number of deaths, loss of friends, and funerals to attend.
My friend is now a widow while still in her 50's. That just seems so inherently wrong and it breaks my heart to see her in such pain. She is alone with a business to run and a joint dream that no longer holds value to her alone. But there is a home to maintain, animals to care for, and a business that has to be open six days a week in order for her to survive.
What to say? "I'm sorry", "I love you", and "I'm thinking of you" only go so far. I wish I knew some magic words that would alleviate her pain and ease her loneliness. But I don't and I don't think anyone knows those words. I can only hope that my hug conveyed them.
Treasure your loved ones, our time here is short.
